Flowers and fantasy


One of the cards Nancy had on the launch show of the fabulous new Floral Layers products. There is a clever spray called Terial Magic which changes the composition of fabric so it can be run through the printer, the beautiful flowers printed onto it which in turn can be cut with the coordinating dies. If you have not watched one of the shows then you really need to as this is something very different.

Good evening Peeps, it's a rather rushed post as I am a tad late with some of these samples and by the same token might be a bit early with others, truth is it's been a rather hectic week or two with the Tattered Lace 3rd Anniversary celebrations.

So it's going to be a few photos........and I've had to pinch a couple of those from TL as I didn't get as far as taking photos of some before they had to go off for the shows. Do you get the impression I'm losing the plot......you may well be right as I am still struggling with flu and it's knocked me for six as per usual and my head is anywhere but on my shoulders.

This one is for tonight's show when the new foiling system is being launched, aptly named ' The Midas Touch', the silver foil was laid onto one of the adhesive sheets and then cut with one of the pearl dot frames. The rest of the card is pretty straightforward.

The Unicorns which are also making an appearance this week and of course a background of Pan Pastels.

The silver foiling again on both the little die cut tress and the ornate pin dot heart, I did remember to photograph this one but it was a real pain getting a decent shot with the shine from the silver.

Many thanks for popping by and enjoy the rest of the week, I will be missing from blogland for a couple of days as I have a hot date with the NHS !

  5. Those flowers look amazing, Brenda.
    Your own cards look very pretty as well. I love how the pan pastel background creates just the perfect scene for your unicorns and your easel card is really elegant.
    Sorry to hear you are having more health issues again. It must be hard to remain positive all the time if there never seems to be a quiet spell to catch your breath. It seems that Imhave missed a few posts. I will have a browse when things settle down at my end. DH was operated yesterday. He is doing fine, although his wound is causing much pain (he is not one to complain, so it must be really hurting). They wanted to keep him for one more night but he should be allowed to come home tomorrow.
    Sending positive thoughts your way!

  9. Sorry to hear you are still under the weather. These flu virus really like to hang around don't they? I do hope you feel better soon and everything else health wise gets sorted out.
    Once again your cards are beautiful. I was able to watch a couple of the TL shows featuring the fabric spray - it was fascinating to watch and the flowers look so realistic.
    Take care

  18. A fabulous selection of cards, I totally love the first one, great flowers and a fabulous choice of colours but if you really don't mind me saying, have no idea what the die sentiment says, no idea on the first line and I think the second line says - a card it's a hug and no idea what the last line says.
    Hope your date goes well in the next couple of days
